Jonathan "ProtonJon" Wheeler (b. November 8, 1985) is a Canadian Let's Player and a founding member of TheRunawayGuys.

Biography Edit

Jon was one of Emile's mains inspirations to start creating Let's Plays[9]. He is one of Emile's closest friends and a founding member of TheRunawayGuys. Jon's been jokingly described as "whiny", "moody", and "just a little snooty".[10][11] Jon hooked up with fellow LPer Lucahjin on January 7th, unknown year, as they celebrated their anniversary at MagFest. [12] ProtonJon proposed marriage to her at Pax West 2017 and she accepted. [13] Jon and Lucah adopted a cat that was blind in one eye, and Lucah was the one who named the cat Bagel. The reason for the name was because of how, when it curles up, it looks like a bagel. [14] Bagel has also been affectionately nicknamed 'Big Boss', after the character from Metal Gear Solid 3, for only having one eye. Jon and Lucah later got another cat and named her Eva (continuing the MGS3 reference). Bagel, as it turns out, doesn't like bagels. [15] Jon proposed to Lucah and they're set to get married in September 2018. [16]
